Built from the sole up, the collectible set sits at over 12cm high, 27cm long and 9cm wide, scaled to the size of an actual sneaker. I tried a couple of different sizes and it turned out that the shapes of an adidas sneaker in size US 7.5 was the best match for our LEGO pieces and plates. Arriving with real shoelaces, an original shoebox as well as a display stand, this unique collaboration is a first for the brick model brand.
